Viper RC factory driver Andrew Smolnik files the following race report.
The Alabama AMS 2.0 Race lured in 470 entries and some very tough competition. I would like to thank all my sponsors for their support in making the race a success. In the Pro 2wd Short Course class, I qualified 2nd after 3 tough and sweaty rounds of qualifying. The mains would be split into two 7 min finals which combined both times to determine the champion. Both mains proved to be just as challenging as qualifying, however I managed to take the overall win by a considerable margin with two very clean and stable runs.
